A popular well run and over-subscribed school with a broad academic base and enriched curriculum which focuses on grounding girls in the academic basics and develops confidence through participation in a wider range of trips and activities. Girls are personable, confident and happy. They enjoy excellent relationships with their teachers and they are excellently prepared for senor school. The vast majority of Year 6 transfer to the Senior School.
